With the windy staircase (to nowhere?) at the front door, the cozy little booths, and the charming textured ceiling tiles, walking into this SoCo eatery feels like you're momentarily ducking into Florence. There's also a gorgeous courtyard out back, and the food is straightforward Italian: Good for dates who like to play it safe culinary-wise.

Romantic and intimate. Sat on back patio with jazzy live music. Everything tasted so well thought out and homemade. I ordered butternut squash ravioli. Must've been homemade pasta because it was tender but al dente. Best ravioli I ever had!

Classic Italian – Reservations are a must for this intimate, old-school Italian spot on SoCo. Get a table in the beer garden if you can, since there's usually a jazz band on the weekends.

Heated Patio, Live Jazz, Romantic Italian – This place has the lighting of a Greenich Village Italian hidden Trattoria. The big oak tree in the back covers the whole patio, and the place is dog friendly. The crowd is thirty-something, professional, and attractive. People were dressed up and looked chic.

The portions are not Texas-sized, so you will have room for dessert. We had to ask for bread. The scallops are lucious and the wine list has romatic choices. I had the Pork Tenderloin Saltimbocca served over mashed potatoes with tomatillos.

Absolutely Outstanding – I've dined there before and had a pleasant experience. Despite a previous poster's objections, I find the noisy patrons refreshing. It reminds me of an upscale small New York joint. This place goes out of their way to be great hosts. On my wifes birthday our party of 15 was mistreated and forgotton at a nearby restaurant. I called on a whim and Botticellis made room for us immediately out back and saved my wifes birthday. I couldn't thank them enough. Those actions really count. Thank you guys!

Fun Beer Garden, Delicious Pasta and Italian Wine – As you step in the door, you notice this place is a little classier than most of the other restaurants on South Congress. The small, intimate space makes you ready for a dining experience.

We started with the Porcini Crusted Sea Scallops which were amazing! You will want to savor every bite. We also paired some of their delicious Italian red wine with the Mushroom Pansotti. The bread and olive oil is so good that you'll want to clean the plate.

Plus, they have a great beer garden with happy hour specials and music for casual nights in SoCo.

Fun Fine Dining on South Congress – Botticelli's is the closest thing you'll find to a fine dining experience in a quaint setting on South Congress. Excellent food, great wine, and a more upscale (but still welcoming) clientele can be expected at this Italian Restaurant.

We tried the Scallops for an appetizer-- they were great. Served with sliced apples and creme fresh, they were a tasty way to start the meal. The mushroom pansotti and butternut squash ravioli were both GREAT. Also, the serving sizes are just right-- not too big to overly stuff you, but enough for a good meal.

Botticelli's is the perfect spot if looking for a fine meal at a reasonable cost on South Congress.

Definitely will go back... – I've had a run of bad luck lately when it comes to dining out but enjoyed dinner here last weekend. It's nice to be able to make a reservation, food was very good, service was also good. Great atmosphere, too. Only challenge is it gets very loud so can be challenging to hear the other people at your table. I'd definitely recommend this place.

Decent Food, Terrible Atmosphere – THE GOOD: Great wine list, eggplant bruschetta was memorable; the squash ravioli was very nice and elegant with simple blended flavors.

THE BAD: The atmosphere was unbearable. The dining room is very small and crowded, with tables right next to the crowded bar area. We were speaking in near-shouting voices the entire night just to hear each other. My ears were ringing by the time we got out of there! To top this off, there was a lot of traffic passing through the dining area all night to get to the beer garden in back! I liken this to eating fine Italian food at a local sports bar?really not very appealing at all.

OVERALL: The food and service were memorable, but Botticelli's is not worth it due to the noisy atmosphere and horribly crowded dining experience.

Superior service and food – Obviously in a happening part of Austin. Take your chances finding parking - like in most of Austin. Very nice atmosphere. Noisy people enjoying themselves. Excellent service. Excellent food - our compliments to the Chef(s) and to the wait staff. We will definitely dine here when we return to Austin. Thank you Botticelli's for a lovely evening.

Best Service, delicious food! – I hosted a large party here and was so impressed with the food and service. Our waitress was INCREDIBLE! She was so nice and always had a smile on her face. I had never had such a wonderful experience with staff at a restaurant. The food and wine was outstanding! I ordered the butternut squash pasta and fell in love! I am thankful I came upon Botticelli's and look forward to my next dining experience there.
